This guy is clearly trying to spam me! Does anyone actually fall for this?

Note:
1. I am actually only selling one snake.
2. Most of the snakes in the list I gave him don’t exist and the prices I gave are outrageous.

This is to confirm from you whether the reptiles are still available for sale. I'll appeciate it if you can tell me the last asking price,the reason you want to sell and if there is more pics on it I'll love to see it as well. I 'll be waiting to hear from you as soon as you can.

Thanks for your email.
I'm okay with the price of Mainland Reticulated Python - £800,Yellow rat snake - £450,Frog snake (het for albino) - £850,Anaconda Boa - £50. the total amount is £2,100.I'll not be able to send the cheque to you myself due to the far distance so as not to delay the transaction,but I've made an arrangement with my business partner,who is UK,to send a cheque of £5,000 to you.Just have the cheque cleared within 3-5 days.As soon as it clears,you'll deduct the price of it,and help me transfer the remaining funds to my shipping company via Western Union Money Transfer the same day the cheque clears which serve as shipping charges to my shipper for the pick up arrangement at your location.I'm compensating you with £100 for the running around expenses in the transaction.
I'll need your full data so that I can instruct him to forward the payment to you as soon as possible.

NAME...
ADDRESS...
PHONE NUMBER...

Hope to hear from you soonest.
Regards,
Bale Wright

Haha! Thats halarious!

I responded to some person in 'london'. She was selling a BRB, which I really wanted, and it was cheap. So, numerous emails later, I agreed, and asked if she was around one weekend, as I am in london too. Turns out she is actually in British Cameroons in Africa. She wanted me to send her the £200, and she would post it, it would only take 13 hours apparently... well, I was having non of it. She KEPT emailing me back, so I just ignored her, he gave up in the end, lol

I had this exact same scam happen with my car. ended up this guy (in switzerland) sending me a FAKE bankers draft. it was listed as from the bank of ireland, and was sent from spain. lol.
I phoned up the irish bank, and was told it was fake, spoke to auto-trader to tell them about this scam, and then posted ALL the information to the police.

its called the 419 scam, and usually originates from Nigeria. If anyone fancies having fun with these guys, then take a look at this site: http://www.419eater.com/ Theres loads of tips for winding them up, but the most important thing to remember is they can be dangerous, so only use totally untraceable email addresses (hotmail, yahoo etc) and NEVER give out any true information - stay safe, and have fun! ;)
